The first game remained scoreless until Pfeiffer’s Ranzy York (Milton-Freewater, OR) blasted a two-run homer over the left center field fence to make it 2-0.
Pfeiffer added another two runs in the fifth inning on one hit and a Bobcat error to make it 4-0. The highlight of the inning was RBI double by Martina Bullard (Godwin, NC).
Pfeiffer used two homeruns, two singles and a double to score six unearned runs in the sixth inning to push the game to 10-0.
Amanda Dodson (Walnut Cove, NC) took the loss for Lees-McRae. In four innings of work, she surrendered only three hits and two runs.
York earned the win for Pfeiffer in the circle going the complete game and allowing only four hits and facing 21 batters.
Veronica Ollier (Chula-Vista, CA), Anna Carter (Hurdle Mills, NC), Nicole Baxter (Denver, NC) and Meagan Knowles (West Palm Beach, FL) were the only Bobcats to collect hits.
York led the Falcons by going 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI. Bullard had three hits in four plate appearances with two runs scored and two RBI.
In game two, York again put the Falcons on the scoreboard first with a solo blast to right center to give Pfeiffer a 1-0 lead.
But, Lees-McRae answered and tied the game in the bottom of the sixth inning. Ashley Benfield (Taylorsville, NC) led off the inning with a single and scored when Paula Fryar’s (Clinton, NC) single got through the Falcon leftfielder.
In the top of the eighth inning and with the international tiebreak rule in effect, Bullard delivered the go ahead run on a single to right that scored Kylee Nichols (McMinville, OR), who was placed at second to begin the inning.
